Abstract [en]

The traditional way set up noise dose-effect relationships is to rely on cross-sectional studies, where narrow bands of actual or projected noise exposure levels are plotted against an effect, e.g. self-reported annoyance. When there is an abundance of noise levels to compute from, and a common scale for the effect measures, this procedure is straightforward. Means and confidence intervals of e.g. annoyance at a given noise level can be presented. However, setting up dose-effect relationships can be approached from another point if view. If the focus is shifted away from generating levels of effect at different noises doses to the relative change in effect by lowering or increasing the noise dose, the relevant information is found in the slope or 1st derivative of the noise dose-effect relationship. Just plotting noise-effect slopes from different studies, will, if the grouping of the slopes come out in a coherent and orderly way, set a platform for statements about gains and losses in effects as a result of changes in levels. This was done in the present paper for a set of cognitive outcomes of noise exposure. The results showed that reading and recall memory were the cognitive outcomes with the steepest slopes.
